The Girls are Finally HOME

I probably should be napping right now because the girls are sleeping, but I just had to write about the exciting news. I am sure most of you know already, but our sweet little twin girls came home yesterday. It was a long 8 weeks but we all made it and now they are home with us. It was so exciting to leave the NICU with the girls instead of having to say goodnight to them there every night. It was a little sad in some ways to say goodbye to the amazing staff who took such great care of our girls. I almost wanted to ask which one of them was going to come home with us.
We left with plenty of papers and instructions and best wishes...
The girls have a very clean bill of health.. The only things we need to give them outside of the regular care is Iron twice a day and Vitamin D once a day.. Ruby has a check up next week to get her left eye checked again and hopefully the spots will have gotten smaller, or disappeared this time.

It was quite an adventurous day for the girls coming home.
Most of you also know we are moving to a new house on Monday and really did not think the girls would be home to be in this home so the nursery was not set up here and was going to be done on Friday at the new house. SO we do not have the cribs here at this house. Thankfully they are little and we can improvise! BOXES! Before anyone calls social services everything is just fine. My siblings and I actually slept in a box (not deep boxes or anything) and it certainly is a lot easier than setting up the cribs here for 5 days and then taking them down.. The house is a disaster but thankfully they will not know that!

They are wonderful little bundles of joy, and though I certainly did not get a full nights rest.. We are SO happy to have them home with us. We were sitting watching the LOST finale with the girls and just smiling that we could hold them and be close to them. I have so missed them these 8 weeks.

SO WELCOME HOME RUBY JANE AND CHARLOTTE ELIZABETH
Mommy and Daddy are so happy and excited to have you home!

You have to frame the box picture. It is so cute. I can't wait to meet them in August.
